The Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism will offer a free pre-conference workshop from 1:30-5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 25. 
Attendees will learn the fundamental methods for inspecting public filings for corporate fraud. The information gained in this session will allow reporters to spot red flags in corporate disclosures and understand when to pursue a potential fraud investigation.
Instructors Roddy Boyd of the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation and Sam E. Antar, a convicted felon and CFO of Crazy Eddie, Inc., will take an afternoon to show you how securities fraud is done and how to unearth reams of libel-proof data and facts from corporate financial filings. 
Our goal is to pierce the very expensive veil companies erect so that your reporting is never again dependent upon Wall Street and corporate hacks.
